There are different reasons for going to school in the UK
One thing is certain, however: all students develop with the experiences they have in England. They become more independent, more open-minded and more self-confident. Every move abroad changes your own perspective and broadens your mind. Together with us, you will find out when is the right time to take this step.
The right time to go abroad is a very individual decision.
Your child's personality plays a large part here (is he or she ready for it?) and also whether the school at home grants leave to go abroad during standard school career.
The possible entry points into the British school system are at 13+ (Year 9 entry), 14+ (Year 10 entry), 15+ (Year 11 entry/Pre Sixth) and 16+ (Sixth Form) - but there are always exceptions to this rule! Most students join in September of any school year, but mid-year entries are also possible.
